Description Mark Fredrickson 2016-09-15 05:26:58 UTC
This is the same as bug 31066 but now it is occurring with XS 6.1, XCode 8 and SDK 10. I just updated everything and built my project and the version code is missing from the archives window. It still is uploaded to Apple so no problems there. Looks like a simple bug in XS 6.1.
Comment 1 emme.milani 2016-09-15 12:19:09 UTC
Here a workaround for fix the bug on version code:
1) archive for publish..
2) click Reveal in finder on the generated archive
3) right click on the ".xcarchive" in finder and click on "Show Package content"
4)double click on info.plist
5)Under Application properties add a key "CFBundleVersion" and set it to you version code. 
6)Sign in and distribute on archives in Xamarin studio
Comment 2 Mark Fredrickson 2016-09-15 15:02:58 UTC
That key is already in info.plist. It's just not showing in the Archives window. When you send the archive to Apple they see the bundle version just fine.
Comment 3 emme.milani 2016-09-15 15:10:40 UTC
Not true in my case.. the bundle version is not included in the info.plist. And the archive window show it correctly after you manually add it.

I have checked this issue with XamarinStudio and Xamarin.iOS and observe that now the Version Code is displayed after building and archiving an iOS app.

Please refer to the screencast.

Comment 9 Lucas 2016-12-05 02:01:03 UTC
Any update on this?  Or how do I get XS 6.2?  I have a client wanting a new build and this is blocking me publishing my archive.
Comment 10 emme.milani 2016-12-05 11:28:08 UTC
To get 6.2 you must switch to beta channel or you can stay on stable and use my workaround on comment 1.
